I started a new project the other night. One that I really like, but I'm afraid that the yarn that I chose has decided that it's just too good for the project. Snobby yarn. It's too loose and fancy free for a multi-cabled project I'm afraid. The stitch definition just isn't there. I also got gauge, but it feels way too loose and limber.
This is what it looks like currently:
The cables just aren't defined enough and the fabric feels loosey-goosey (that's a technical term.) I got through 32 rows of the front right side and decided that it just wasn't doing it for me. I adore the pattern (Ravelry link), but not with this yarn.
Not wanting to give up on the snobby yarn, I went looking through the Ravelry database in search of just the right pattern for it. Ya know what? I didn't find one single thing that thrilled me. So many bloomin' patterns there and not one raised it's hand and spoke up for the yarn. So sad.
